Revenge of the License: Wolverine: Adamantium Rage

You can argue with the rest of the internet until your keyboard bangers are worn down into worthless little bone-tipped spurs, but you will be unable to stem the Super Douchebaggery tide which inevitably overwhelms you should you claim Wolverine was anything less than the best at what he did back in the 1990’s. Listen, it’s simple: in the 90’s, there were more X-Men and their various spin-off books published by Marvel each month than there were Brady Bunch kids. And while there were many mutants, Wolverine won the popularity contest among teenage boys claws-down. Based solely on the ability of game developers to smell millions of dollars in fanboy cash, 1994 saw the release of Wolverine: Adamantium Rage for the Genesis.

Bandit Gaming: Another Unofficial Resident Evil 2 Remake in the Works Using the Unreal Engine

I remember the fervor that built up around the Resident Evil series, not once but twice, over the years. The first time was the release of the original game on Playstation- magazines such as Gamefan and Electronic Gaming Monthly were covering it like crazy showing pics from early builds and following the story. Gamers reciprocated this coverage with a lot of letters and interest, and later sales upon release. The second time there was a ton of interest in the Resident Evil games came when Capcom announced they would be re-releasing the original game in a new updated style on the Nintendo Gamecube. Sadly, gamers didn’t get this same attention to remakes for the rest of the games, including the fan favorite Resident Evil 2. Now, another set of fans are taking it upon themselves to remedy that problem.

Hardware Hack: Donkey Kong Style Game Boy Advance SP Custom Case

The name Vadu Amka shouldn’t be all that new to too many people reading this, after all he did create a special Sega Genesis/Mega Drive hardware mod that was pretty popular. Now, Vadu Amka has taken to modding the Game Boy Advance SP from Nintendo into a true work of art- Donkey Kong art that is.

New Game: Chariot Brings Umihara Kawase and Bionic Commando Style Mixed with Defensive Play to Modern Gamers

Umihara Kawase, an under rated Super Famicom game, featured gameplay similar to Bionic Commando where you had the ability to latch onto things and pull yourself up. Now, imagine that gameplay mixed with defending another character, similar to Ico on Playstation 2. That is the basic idea of Chariot where you are escorting the dead king in his mobile tomb back to the royal burial plot. Along the way though you will face caves, obstacles and of course, enemies that would rather you not complete your journey.

Slain 7 Towers Gothic game

Update: The 7 Towers Rebranded as Slain, Coming Early Next Year

The 7 Towers is a 2D side scrolling action adventure set in a gothic landscape. That is the gist of The 7 Towers. Recently Wolfbrew Games announced that they will be rebranding 7 Towers to Slain, a much more fitting name for the game- just look at the recently released trailer for proof of that.

Sky Rogue PC Sky Fox Top Gun retro

New Game: Sky Rogue Mixes After Burner and Star Fox and is Coming to Steam

Alright, flat shaded polygon arcade shooters similar to Star Fox are not something we see all too often. Thanks to the team behind Sky Rogue, we can enjoy one more game in this genre. The big difference between Sky Rogue and Star Fox is the open, procedurally generated, world of Sky Rogue (and it runs a lot faster than the Nintendo classic).

New Game- Revolver360 RE:Actor Brings 2D/3D Scrolling Shooting To Modern Gamers

Anyone remember Philosoma on the originaly Playstation? The changing views with each level, the over the top graphics (for the time) were great. Well, Revolver360 RE:Actor has taken that style to a whole new level with a fully 3D game world but played from a 2D perspective. The video below illustrates this take on the genre really well.

New Game: Powerglove for Commodore 64 Released

Run and gun games really became a staple in gaming with the Nintendo Entertainment System and a little title named Contra. The Commodore 64 was not exactly overflowing with them but there were a few arcade ports (even a Contra game or two amongst them) that featured this style of gameplay. Powerglove, a new homebrew title, is looking to expand the run and gun category on the Commodore 64 on an actual cartridge- now it is available for more platforms.

Donkey Kong Country Doom Engine SNES

Bandit Gaming: Donkey Kong Country Recreated Using Doom Engine

The headline is not misleading in any way. A modder by the name of “DooMero” has used the Doom engine, specifically the GZDooM hack, to recreate Donkey Kong Country in a 2.5D side scrolling platformer. The results are quite interesting to say the least.
